WASHINGTON ― A familiar thing happened Thursday morning: President Donald Trump made a stunningly sexist comment about a woman, and the same few Republicans stepped up again to express their disappointment.
Trump spewed insults at “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski on Twitter, calling her “crazy” and dumb and mocking her face ― all insults he has lobbed at women before.
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) offered an anemic rebuke.
“I don’t view that as an appropriate comment,” he told reporters at a press conference.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who regularly denounces Trump, took the opportunity to do it again.
